Snoring & Sleep Apnea

Sleep Disruptions

Do you wake up with a dry mouth?
Do you experience irritability?
Do you wake up gasping for air?
Do you suffer from excessive sleepiness during the day?
Do you have frequent morning headaches?
Have you been told that you snore or stop breathing at night?

Snoring is caused by narrowing or blocking of the airway. The disruption of airflow causes the soft palate and tissues of the throat to vibrate, and the narrower the airway becomes, the louder the snoring.

Sleep Apnea

Obstructive sleep apnea is caused by a physical blockage in the airway that causes pauses in breathing or shallow breaths during sleep. This is usually caused by the tongue or soft tissues in the neck, as they relax while the patient sleeps. The sleep disruption caused by sleep apnea can negatively impact your quality of sleep, leaving you tired and irritable.

Custom Sleep Appliances

Many patients that suffer from sleep disorders may be able to find relief using a custom removable oral appliance that adjusts the position of the lower jaw and tongue during sleep. Each oral appliance is custom-created for the patient, ensuring that it is the most comfortable fit possible. Even then, oral appliances can take some adjustment. Please be sure to bring your oral appliance to your appointments to make sure it is fitting properly.

Custom Snoring Appliances

For many patients who snore but do not have sleep apnea, a custom snoring appliance can help reduce snoring by gently repositioning the jaw to open the bite and increasing the airway opening.
